Great game for the Europa league final. Sevilla wins it 3-2 with 2 goals from Bacca, great game from a neutral perspective.

Spain will now have 5 teams in the UCL next year, very exciting.
Does that mean Bilbao are in the Europa?
Yes I think.
Bilbao was in Europa regardless though since they made the Copa Final I think
hey guys... been out for a couple of days so this might be a little long.... first:

"Benítez is 99% certain to take charge of Real Madrid." - Carlos' Agent

If he comes to madrid he will have my full support like any other manager or player who has made his way to the whitehouse, but its depressing to see how we went from Mourinho to Ancelotti.... toooooo.... Rafa.... Thats is a serious, serious step down in quality and its because we have literally drained every top manager out there. 9 managers in 12 seasons. Its not the first time we've been forced to gamble on managers as a result of options already been used up and as long as the club is run this way, it wont be the last.

_____________________________________________________

*President/CEO: The president is responsible for providing strategic leadership for the company by working WITH THE BOARD and OTHER MANAGEMENT to establish long-range goals, strategies, plans and policies.

*Business Ownership: Having the CONTROL over a business enterprise and being able to DICTATE its functioning and operations.

So, after reading that, which one of these would anyone here use to describe Perez?

Did you know the official interview stating whether or not Carlo would have been sacked was marked for 7pm in Madrid. At 6pm they were forced to push the interview to 8pm. Guess why.... Because the arguments were intense and the board insisted that Ancelotti should not be sacked and the debate went on for hours. The decision was made in the final minute as Perez himself stated. "We have just taken the decision. The captains don't know it yet, we will have to tell them."

The decision to sack Carlo was made by one man. One man alone. The players wanted him to stay, the fans wanted him to stay, board wanted him to stay, carlo and his staff wanted to stay, even the journalists wanted him to stay and despite everyone in the club literally BEGGINING for the man to stay, one man said its not what he wanted so took the decision upon himself, took on the most historic club to date and won. Like he has won so many other times. Tell me, are we speaking of a man who works with the board and other management for the best interest of the company or a man who's trying to take full control and dictate it? Because last i checked, Real Madrid wasn't bought.

For a long time i've known that Perez is the reason we haven't been as succesful as we should be in the last decade but i've never wanted to see him out of this club more than i do today. Not because of Carlo specifically but because this recent incident shows that whatever 90% of the club feels is in the best interest does not matter...

when asked what Ancelotti did wrong he said, " I dont know"... when asked about the players feelings towards it.... "The players support for Carlo Ancelotti did not bother me." sigh

As you can see for yourself, his time in Madird has been a complete failure. 3 La Ligas out of 12, 2 CL out of 12, 2 CDR out of 12, 6 trohpyless seasons out of 12 and 4 of those in a row. Carlo is the only manager who has won more than at least one title a season under Perez and its clear that his interests are financially and everything else that comes after is a bonus.

He is a massive businessman, he keeps Real Madrid on top of every other club as the wealthies but whats the point? We would happily accept being the third or fourth welathiest club if it meant we finally began succeeding. We are in the era where money wins you titles, its sad but its true. We got more of that than any other club, so clearly there's a problem with the way its being run. As a company we are always up there but as a football club his mentality is taking us to the wrong direction and we would do so much better with someone who cared for the club and for winning titles. Someone who would take pride in bringing up and catering for our own youth players. Someone who would at least feel ashamed of considering selling our stadium's historic name to the some arabs for extra money.

Not gonna act like i know everything about Madrid's elections or presidency, but its so clear to see that this club needs a different approach towards thigns related to football. As long as someone with Perez' mentality is running the club, no matter how many players we sign, coaches we bring in and formations we put up, the squad will never reach it's full potential.


___________________________________________

Finally i just wanna say thank you to Carlo. A Father is always more respected than a boss and he was certainly turning into a father figure. When i saw Perez confirm his sacking i swear my heart broke into two. Carlo was never perfect, he had things he needed to fix, different ways that he needed to deal with different things but there is no doubt he was the best man for the job. I remember once Perez said he wanted Carlo to be our sir alex ferguson. I began to believe that. I thought we would finally settle down with someone who knows what he is doing, who gets along with all the ego's in the dressing room, who plays the type of football the supporters wanna see and who gets along well and is respectful to the media, and that is so important because it takes out so much uneeeded pressure from the players. Certainly my favourite Madrid manager since I began supporting the club and I will miss seeing the Don standing by the bench.

For those who don't know, Carlo is gonna go through surgery and take a year off. For this year he will keep living in Madrid and is about to get his Real Madrid membership card and will be in the bernabeu watching Madrid's home games.

In all honestly I do believe Perez is feeling the pressure for releasing a man from his post for absolutely 0 reason. What I would love is for the Media to run with it straight up until the new one is appointed and even after the season starts. If Carlo is ever present in the stands that the players if winning or losing acknowledge his presence and by extension the fans. Though it would be an awkward moment for the overseeing coach he would only have Perez for putting him in such a situation.

Perez has now effectively made it extremely difficult for any coach to come after Carlo and have anything other than wins or draws, as any loses in any fashion I believe the fans and media will tear Perez apart rather than the coach.
Perez can be an idiot sometimes.
Perez can be an idiot all the time

The defensive problems are not just Casillas' fault.

Can you imagine if Barca signs Pogba to replace Busquets? He would effectively create a situation where Barcelona would dominate for years.

I hope we are successful in getting him, but we don't ever sign players we need or those that are essential to our team only those to help sell kits and hopefully play a bit of football.
Pogba isn't a replacement for Busquets although he can play in Busquets' position. Pogba is a box to box midfielder who can dribble at pace as well unlike most central midfielders. He is more suited to replace Iniesta who will come off the bench more and more in the next few years. His talents will be wasted if he has to lie deep like Busquets. Also Busi is 26 and he will be at the top of his game for another 4-5 years. I don't see how we're going to get him considering he won't be at Barca until next summer. Juve would prefer it because Barca might offer to pay his salary while he plays for Juve which is a win-win situation for them.
+1
Why does everyone think Pogba is a defensive midfielder? Because he's big and strong? Sure, he might be able to play that position but it would be a huge waste of his talent.
+4
Sergio has the most secure spot out of our midfield trio... he would probably replace Iniesta.
Six high level FIFA officials arrested on corruption charges 9 in total have been indicted by the U.S. and Swiss authorities in ZUrich including the vice president and somehow Blatter dodges this one too,lol the guy is like the teflon Don John Gotti.

No one is shocked, but I hope its of many things more to come in reshaping FIFA. Poor Figo knew why he was dropping out of the race.
I have to say initially the thought of Benitez coming in was a bit of a shock, and I definitely wasn't feeling very positive about the prospect, however after thinking about it for a while I have to say there may be some positives that come from it all.

If he brings his notorious rotations it will be good to see some of the players such as Jese get more minutes, as well as not see key players like Kroos and Modric being run into the ground. Would really like to see a different formation applied to mix it up as well, maybe seeing Bale on the left and James on the right.

Either way even though optimism is not high I'm interested to see what Benitez does with the squad if he does indeed come, can only hope for the best.

Everyone was skeptical when Allegri took over Juve, including myself. Look how that turned out. This is a similar situation imo
+1
Replace Coentrao, nacho, illaramindi, chicharito. maybe arbeloa but definitely bring de gea or someone really good.
I know this is a long shot but how do you guys feel about getting Unai Emery? He seems the perfect man for madrid imo knows la liga and has overachieved at sevilla. Thoughts ?
Great manager, but doesn't have a big enough 'name' to coach Madrid.
Sami Khedira looks more likely to move to the old lady. Juve sure love those free transfers.

Have to give them credit though, they have been doing great business for a few years now. Getting players on the cheap and then increase their value.
Yes we do. It's especially good because these players come with a chip on their shoulders, wanting to prove themselves and that their former team scorned an amazing player- here's hoping he rediscovers his pre-Madrid form.
Not necessarily pre Madrid, more like Mourinho Madrid but whenever he plays for Germany he was a beast, I remember in Euros, he was their most commanding CM.
Just read Iker saying he was angry with Carlo for dropping him to play Lopez. WTF is that the same guy who says he'd welcome De Gea to Madrid?? The one guy who's about to take over as Spain's #1 and to come to Madrid to bench Iker and he says he'd be okay as long as he's still at Madrid he'd do whatever necessary for the team.

One hand you say you were upset at being benched by a player who was effectively better than you and on the other say you'd be happy to be benched by a player who IS better than you.

This guy's so much a cancer at Madrid it ain't even funny.

Pedmar, i must ask.... how old are you?

I think our chances of getting Verratti have been cut down even further. Ancelotti knew him and worked with developing him, that might have been a factor for Verratti to consider if we came knocking. Now he's being pursued by a lot of clubs, and right now we aren't in the best state.
I agree, there are a lot of negatives that can come out of this move and one glaring one is if this moves makes us worse next season in terms of results the blame will fall on the board and ultimately Perez himself very risky descision by upper management
Yeah, I was thinking about that the other day. Our chances of signing him now decreased significantly.
You guys don't need him, at least not anytime soon when you have Modric in the team. Plus he is too young and too good to be a backup and has a long contract with PSG but if you wait you canhave him at a much better time in a couple of seasons.
